- Late last year, the New York Daily News
ran a curious story on 85-year-old billionaire philanthropist Laurence
Rockefeller who is funding a special report on UFOs to be sent to President
Clinton and other world leaders.
- Michael Luckman, director of the New
York Center for UFO Research, says the Rockefeller report entitled 'The
Best Available Evidence,' "features testimony from former military
officials and astronauts that contradicts Air Force denials of an alien
- The billionaire's name again pops up
as a VIP attendee at Bill Clinton's birthday party held on a Rockefeller
estate in August last year. The New York Daily News of August 24 reported
that while President Clinton was on the prowl for campaign cash, Laurence
was on the look out for ETs.
- "Rockefeller has been pressing the
Clinton administration to open the government's UFO files," the Daily
News notes. Apparently, Laurence thinks it's time the government came clean
on the subject of UFOs, particularly the rumored crash of a spacecraft
in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
- Is Laurence just another 'truth seeker',
or could there be a more sinister motivation behind his devotion to this
obscure quest? Certainly, there's no doubt that the Rockefellers constitute
one of the world's wealthiest and most influential dynasties.
- Laurences' brother David, a longtime
chairman of Chase Manhattan Bank, heads the family's global corporate empire.
The Rockefeller family played instrumental roles in establishing powerful
supranational bodies like the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign
Relations and the Bilderberg Society.
- If anyone doubts the global power of
the Rockefeller dynasty and their active behind-the-scenes involvement
in international affairs, just consider these remarks by investigative
author Malachi Martin in The Keys of This Blood. He states:
- "Television commentator Bill Moyers
found out during a fifteen-day, globe spanning trip in the company of David
Rockefeller that 'just about a dozen or fifteen individuals made day-to-day
decisions that regulated the flow of capital and goods throughout the entire
- As Bill Moyers himself said, "David
Rockefeller is the most conspicuous representative today of the ruling
class, a multinational fraternity of men who shape the global economy and
manage the flow of its capital. Rockefeller was born to it, and he has
made the most of it. But what some critics see as a vast international
conspiracy, he considers a circumstance of life and just another day's
work... In the world of David Rockefeller it's hard to tell where business
ends and politics begins."
- History of Social Engineering
- A quick history lesson reveals that the
Rockefeller family has a long and some would say -- infamous -- record
of involvement in shaping social causes.
- Thirty years ago when the radical student
movement was gaining momentum in North America, the Rockefeller dynasty
was surprisingly quick to offer funds. A student leader James Simon Kunen,
in his book entitled The Strawberry Incident, tells about the 1968 Students
for a Democratic Society convention in which, "men from Business International
Roundtables,... tried to buy up a few radicals. These men are the world's
industrialists and they convene to decide how our lives are going to go.
They offered to finance our demonstrations in Chicago. We were also offered
ESSO (Rockefeller) money."
- The Black Panther leader Eldridge Cleaver
warned that the megarich were buying themselves a revolution. He wrote:
- "There is a danger to the healthy
development of the American Revolution in the fact that often revolutions
are manipulated by the ruling class to appear to be a bigger threat than
they really are."
- Consider this comment by Frank Capell
in the U.S. Review of the News:
- "Of course, we know that these radical
students are not going to take over the government. What they are going
to do is provide the excuse for the government to take over the people,
by passing more and more repressive laws to 'keep things under control'."
- Rockefeller money effectively bought
the 60s student revolt and steered it in the direction desired by the U.S.
Establishment. The opportunity for constructive social change was lost
thanks to the 'support' of 'Rockybucks'.
- Just ponder some of the social programs
and new ideas taken to heart by the Rockefellers in the past. Rockefeller's
Standard Oil was once, well before the turn of the century, a near monopoly.
It was perceived by the public, quite rightly, as an utterly ruthless brigand
which would stoop to blackmail, murder, bribery, bombing and intimidation
to maintain its power. To 'survive' Rockefeller embarked on a gigantic
"philanthropy" program to finance the pet schemes of the U.S.
ruling class. The paternalistic, elitist nature of one such scheme was
set out in Rockefeller's General Education Board Occasional Paper No.1,
- "In our dreams we have limitless
resources and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our
molding hands. The present educational conventions fade from our minds,
and unhampered by tradition, we work our own goodwill upon a grateful and
responsive rural folk.... The task we set before ourselves is a very beautiful
one, to train these people as we find them to a perfectly ideal life just
where they are. So we will organise our children into a little community
and teach them to do in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers
are doing in an imperfect way, in the home, in the shop, and on the farm."
- Rockefeller the ignoble robber baron
was transformed into Rockefeller the great civiliser and humanitarian.
The all-wise father guiding and chastening his wayward children.
- By the 1920s John D. Rockefeller, the
founder of the Rockefeller dynasty, was funding the notorious "racial
hygiene" think tank Eugenics Records Office. Its ideas of mass sterilization,
the 'inferiority' of Black people and "breeding better humans"
directly influenced Adolf Hitler and provided 'scientific legitimacy' for
the Nazi race laws. This did not stop the ubiquitous Rockefeller Foundation,
a decade later, offering huge grants to the Black civil rights leader and
preacher Father Divine. By 1941 Father Divines' Peace Mission had over
a million members and was quickly gaining public attention. Father Divine's
widow wrote that her husband maintained his freedom of thought and action
by refusing Rockefeller financial aid.
- Others were not so fortunate.
- Dr. Wilhelm Reich, shortly before he
mysteriously died in prison in 1957, told prison psychologists that the
Rockefeller Foundation "made me a tool of its socioeconomic interpersonal
- Both the American Medical Association
[see New Dawn No.33 & 34] and the psychiatric establishment, who had
persecuted Reich for years received substantial funding from the Rockefeller
- Rockybucks All Around
- Laurence Rockefeller has been splashing
out substantial sums of money (aka 'Rockybucks') to prominent UFO/alien
researchers and fringe research foundations.
- He has channelled (pardon the pun) money
into Dr. John Mack, the Harvard psychiatrist famous for his book on so-called
'alien abductions'. Laurence is alleged, based on well substantiated rumours
and published information, to have also made a contribution of prestige
and perhaps money to help Dr. Mack resist efforts at Harvard to censure
him for his 'alien abduction' beliefs.
- At a meeting of the Rhode Island Mutual
UFO Network (MUFON), Mack likened the abductee experience to that of an
endangered animal being hunted and temporarily debilitated in order to
be moved to a safe place. The animal does not know that it is being "hurt"
for its own good, for the survival of its species.
- Mack believes the 'greys' (aliens) are
trying to tell us in a cryptic way -- through the abduction experience
-- our species is in danger. In order to save us from extinction, they
are playing God by doing some evolutionary tinkering with our DNA.
- Greens and Greys
- "... intelligences of the highest
power are absolutely appalled that this one species is so out of control,
so insensitive to the living ecosystem of the earth..." -- Dr. John
Mack, Harvard Psychiatrist
- Mack also managed to link ufology and
ecology -- another of Laurence's longtime causes, which is quite a paradox
considering it's no big secret Nelson Rockefeller -- a dynasty patriarch
-- singlehandedly destroyed the Amazon! Then again, times change and so
do strategies if you want to stay ahead of the rest. (Even if Laurence
was on a guilt trip for past family excesses -- and it is customary for
the megarich to make token endowments to "liberal" social causes
-- his current endowments are rather strange.)
- Mack's bridge between UFOs and ecology
is evident in a recent book of articles compiled by the Sierra Club. Entitled
Ecopsychology, Mack asks: "How do we invent a new psychology of our
relationship to the earth?"
- Critics accuse Mack of founding a new
religion in the "green politics" of the aliens. His response
that he "cannot help it if this is the communication coming through,"
digests well with Laurence who concurs with the aliens that we must immediately
stop destroying our precious earth. Mack states "it's not as if there's
no truth to the warning" adding that this message comes through to
people who are "not environmentally sophisticated."
- Still on the ecology front, Laurence
Rockefeller also funds the Green Earth Foundation headed by Terence McKenna.
McKenna scouts the globe collecting psychoactive plants, which he is permitted
to cultivate in Hawaii. One of McKenna's theories is that psychoactive
substances used by native cultures in religious ceremonies induce telepathic
links with alien cultures. He believes the patriarchal "dominator"
cultures of the past few thousand years have failed us and the earth, and
calls for an "archaic revival", which requires a return to humanity's
last "sane" moment 15,000 years ago on the plains of Africa "rocked
in the cradle of the great horned mushroom goddess."
- Another of Rockefeller's UFO-related
activities is his close cooperation with the low-profile BSW Foundation,
headed by wealthy New Yorkers Sandra Wright Houghton and Bootsy Galbraith.
They, too, both embrace the view shared by Rockefeller that the earth is
being visited primarily by benevolent ETs who pose no threat to the established
- Human Potential Foundation
- The Human Potential Foundation (HPF),
founded by U.S. Senator Claiborne Pell and based in Falls Church, Virginia,
is another project funded primarily by Laurence Rockefeller.
- According to Dick Farley, who worked
for the organisation for about three years, Rockefeller's interest in HPF
seemed to be the promotion of "alternative religious and psychiatric/psychological
paradigms, including so-called 'UFOs' and 'abductions,' having 'Global
Mind Change' potentials. Rockefeller put more than $700,000 through the
'HPF' from 1991 to 1994, as Common Cause Magazine recently reported."
- The President of HPF, 'retired' naval
intelligence officer Cdr. C.B. "Scott" Jones, Ph.D., was a contractual
consultant to the Defense Nuclear Agency (1981-1985) before next working
for Senator Pell as Special Assistant (1985-1991), ostensibly looking after
Pell's "paranormal" interests (Jones is also listed in John Mack's
book alongside Laurence Rockefeller).
- The Human Potential Foundation stages
conferences like last year's gathering of luminaries that included author
and investigative reporter Ruth Montgomery, UFO author and psychologist
Leo Sprinkle, transpersonal and para-psychologist Charles Tart, native
American historian Paula Underwood, environmental activist Don Ware, futurist
John Petersen, orientalist and author Zecharia Sitchin, psychiatrist and
author John Mack, clinical researcher Richard Boylan, editor of Omni Magazine
Keith Ferrell, founder of CONTACT James Funaro, Director of United Nations
University Jerome Glenn, and others.
- Entitled "When Cosmic Cultures Meet,"
the conference dealt with a range of interesting subject matter. Joan d'Arc
of Newspeak, who attended the conference, said the problem she found with
"the 'Have-You-Hugged-Your-Gray-Today' school generally prevailing
at the HPF conference is nobody was saying perhaps ETs and abduction experiences
are very bad news."
- And whose job will it be to make official
contact with our space helpers? Joan was handed a questionnaire at the
HPF conference that asked attendees to place in order of importance which
government/military bodies should be given the job. No doubt the chosen
body will also announce the arrival of our space brothers. They are apparently
a little shy when it comes to human interaction, choosing instead to 'abduct'
and study us on an individual basis.
- All Laurence's pet projects contain a
familiar theme: Aliens are here to help us, perhaps aid us along the evolutionary
- Is it a case of he who pays the piper
calls the tune?
- Alien Invasion?
- "In our obsession with antagonisms
of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity.
Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us realize this
common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences would vanish
if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world." -- President
Ronald Reagan, in a speech made to the 42nd General Assembly of the United
Nations, Sept. 21, 1987
- If aliens were visiting earth secretly,
and wanted to eventually make their presence known, who would they approach?
Instead of saying to somebody 'take me to your leader', maybe they worked
out for themselves (being more advanced than us) that the Rockefeller family,
being one of the world's most powerful families (with a penchant for 'steering'
social movements and heralding the 'New World Order'), were the people
to approach. After all, the real power in this world is not in the hands
of governments, but resides with the big transnational corporations.
- Now, this being the case, Laurence (their
roving ambassador) is doing the right thing by the aliens and polishing
their public image. Next comes the announcement of their presence, which
presently requires some effort to "condition" the masses for
this mind-blowing revelation.
- If this theory holds, a gradualist introduction
to the aliens is happening right now. The process of gradualism being the
form of social conditioning favored by such ruling class Rockefeller-dominated
world planners as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Society
and the Trilateral Commission. UFO researcher Glenn Campbell in his Groom
Lake Desert Rat newsletter No. 30 proposes the following:
- "Let us suppose that the UFO cover-up
is real and the government is neither dumb nor nefarious... The panic associated
with the War of the Worlds radio broadcast of 1938 still impressed the
memories of those in power. A determination was made by competent authorities
that the populace was not yet ready for the news, or perhaps that the news
was not ready for them. More time was needed for experts to study the problem
-- both the aliens themselves and the possible public reaction -- and to
prepared a plan. This might be a very long-term plan....
- "The planners devoted much attention
to how the news should be released with minimal social disruption. Ideally,
elements of the truth should be let out gradually over time, but how could
this be done? The SGE ['special government entity'] could not publicly
admit any limited alien contact without being forced to reveal it all.
(Can you imagine the press of the planet demanding any less?) Like the
fall of communism, once the wall cracks, it will come down all at once,
with no further opportunity for information management.
- "The goal of gradual release would
be to acclimate the population emotionally to the form and ideas of the
alien presence without triggering a total release. This can probably be
done more effectively by selective fictions than by truth, because fictions
can be controlled. A hoax need contain only that portion of the truth which
is ready to be introduced to public. The rest can be a fabrication, just
persuasive enough to get it distributed on the Fox network. Indeed, some
part of the story must ultimately fall apart to assure it doesn't go too
far, as the hoax must eventually be dispelled to make room for a larger
- To further bolster this theory, on the
weekend of March 18-19, 1995, with no prior announcement, the Walt Disney
Company conducted a sneak telecast of a UFO documentary in five U.S. states:
Connecticut, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida and California. This amazing documentary,
featuring CEO Michael Eisner (another prominent member of the ruling elite),
put the Disney reputation behind many startling statements such as these:
- "Mankind is in the midst of the
most profound event in history: Actual contact with intelligent life from
- "Intelligent life from distant galaxies
is now attempting to make open contact with the human race, and tonight
we'll show you the evidence.
- "From beyond the boundaries of our
perceptions, intelligent beings are beckoning mankind to join the galactic
community. It's an invitation which is both wondrous and terrifying.
- "Alien ships seem to arrive in waves
and, if the last few years are any indication, planet Earth is experiencing
a tsunami of sightings.
- "As early as 1947, the large alien
ships began to arrive, navigated by living creatures. Their advanced physics
allowed them to traverse the galaxy and pierce Earth's atmosphere with
amazing speed. More than one alien craft crashed and was recovered for
secret U.S. military research.
- "This is the actual site where the
Roswell saucer was discovered along with the bodies of three extraterrestrial
missionaries who didn't survive the collision. The debris and the dead
were impounded and taken away for top-secret study, while a classified
investigative committee, called the Majestic 12, was organized by President
Truman and a government cover-up was initiated with a calculated disinformation
- "For governments determined to maintain
their authority, extra-terrestrial contact is pure dynamite.
- "When [Jimmy Carter] assumed the
office of President of the United States, his staff attempted to explore
the availability of official investigations into alien contact. As this
internal government memo illustrates, there are some security secrets outside
the jurisdiction of the White House.
- "In November of 1975, essentially
every SAC [Strategic Air Command] base in the United States was visited
- "Indications are that government,
military and scientific leaders will soon release nearly a half-century
of official documentation of ongoing alien encounters on Earth.
- "Statistics indicate a greater probability
that you'll experience extraterrestrial contact in the next five years
than the chances that you will win a state lottery.
- "[Most] Americans will likely explore
outer space aboard crafts of alien origin."
- Many UFO researchers feel that Disney's
"stealth" documentary broadcasts were tests of the public's ability
to handle the revelation of an alien reality and the government cover-up.
- Four-Part Strategy
- Richard Boylan, ufologist and attendee
at the HPF conference, claims in Perceptions magazine (January/February
1996) the ETs have a four-part game plan to reveal their presence:
- "First, they are apparently increasing
the pace, boldness and openness of their appearances. Peter Davenport,
director of the [U.S.] National UFO Reporting Center, stated that the center
has been swamped by UFO reports since the first week of July 1995, and
that the numbers are escalating. Not only are there more incidents, but
the center now receives reports of many UFOs in a single sighting.
- "Second, an increasing number of
close-encounter contactees are coming forward to acknowledge their experiences
to psychotherapists, investigators and the public. Many professional researchers
and therapists report increasing numbers of these unsolicited testimonials.
- "Third, many UFO contactees and
researchers feel compelled to bring the ET presence to public awareness.
Reports from around the country verify that many people are feeling such
an urgency of purpose.
- "Fourth is the attitude shift in
many government leaders toward allowing the release or leaks of UFO information..."
- Boylan also suggests that well-informed
sources in both the Republican and Democratic national committees are trying
to assess whether UFOs, and particularly government secrecy about them,
might be a legitimate issue in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
- "In an apparent attempt to avoid
being taken by surprise in the politics of UFO disclosure, Republican National
Committee Chairman Hailee Barbour and other RNC officials have reportedly
contacted several astronauts to learn what they know about UFOs. For its
part, the Democratic National Committee is considering putting one or more
UFO-related questions on a national survey questionnaire they are preparing
for the 1996 election.
- "Actually, the subject may have
already become a campaign issue. During the week of September 17, 1995,
two national figures referred to UFOs. When former President Jimmy Carter
was asked a question about them, he answered by relating an account of
how a former CIA director had used a psychic to precisely locate a downed
secret U.S. plane. This was a veiled reference to intelligence agencies'
use of psychics to study UFOs and extraterrestrials.
- "The same week presidential candidate
Bob Dole disparaged President Clinton's economic-policy claim that more
than 2% growth is impossible without inflation, commenting, 'That's like
the Air Force saying UFOs are impossible.'"
- With all this talk about UFOs, alien
abduction, and secret government files, just what are the Rockefellers
up to? Are the Rockefellers engineering the release of secret government
information on the ETs -- another tit-bit to get us used to our new visitors?
And if there really are no aliens, are the powers-that-be preparing humanity
for a staged alien visitation using advanced technology they've kept secret?
Also, even if these 'visitors' turn out to be more psychological than physical,
the phenomena is still a potent force worthy of manipulation for some 'higher'
- Whatever the case, the Rockefeller family
is no friend of the people. In the end of the day, staying top dog is their
highest pursuit, even if it means doing deals with aliens.
